Creative Gifts – Day #7

Comments from Linda and Shelly reminded me of an idea I once offered in The Needlework Nutshell: Holiday Noodle Tags.

Hand embroidered holiday tags

They’re super-simple, quick, and can be made from tiny scraps. They can add color, interest, and a personal touch to a plain package. Wouldn’t these look great with some tiny spruce cuttings and cones?

You might be surprised what recipients do with them. I’ve seen some of mine hanging on Christmas trees, picture frames, lamps, and–oh, yeah–ears!

So if you don’t love the tag idea, how about a pair of earrings?

Check out the tutorial.
